  • Record bags

    HMV have got those very handy big record 'bags' (more like boxes really) with wheels and a trolley-style extendable handle. not cheap at about 75 quid, but well worth it i reckon.

    anyone got any good recommendations for places to get this style of bag at a reasonable price, or any other bag recommendations?

    i've seen some Japanese collectors with really impressive hard cases that are specifically split up into compartments for 45s and LPs, and look like they're cabin-sized for flights. anyone seen 'em for sale?

    That dj shop on hanway st sells the record bags on wheels. I think they were around £70 too.

      Serm, did you notice if they sell 45 cases, the kind that holds about 100, as opposed to the huge 200 ones or the little weeny 50 ones with the handle on top?

      As for wheelie record cases, I cannot un-recommend them enough - not only are they totally gay, but I&#39;ve been told that the wheels, axel etc are prone to breaking, then where does leave you eh? eh?

      I&#39;d rather throw my back out than have one of those uber gay things, second in gayness only to those backpacks that have a single, diagonal strap, sometimes with a pocket on it for your wee mobile phone thingy...

      ... yes I am hungover.

        By the way, I really, really hope as many people in the London area who hang out here (well not physically of course) come down to HF&amp;S tonight cos bloody Chris was in Amsterdam and bloody forgot to send the bloody listings shit out, so no-one bloody knows about the gig outside of this board and deepfunk... bloody hell&#33;

        The good news is that we finally have fly posters, or will, soon as I work out how to design one on this new-fangled Photoshop business I just installed on the glowing book thing I type things into...

          it says &#39;lightweight&#39;, but the metal is all dimpled so it won&#39;t bend

            I should say I made my own wheelie thing for when I go to utrecht and the like. I don&#39;t what you call them but I got this trolley thing from a hardware store for about £30. Then I stuck my flight case (which I already had) on there - used bungie chord to lash it together and hey presto&#33; Instant wheelie record bag that is hard as nails.

              Serms - has your trolley thing got big 5inch wheels on it? and does it fold flat on itself? Cos if it does, I need to know where you got it cos I can&#39;t find one in the hardware shops round here ...

                  for (sarf) londoners, there&#39;s a DJ supplies shop down the top end of Walworth Road (by Elephant &amp; Castle) that sells these cases pretty cheaply too.

                    Hey rubs.

                    It was one just like this. I got it from this ghetto place near me. It does its job and seems ok but Ive seen awesome aluminium ones for like £80&#33; Very sturdy.

                      Wow, they are cheap, but 200 is too big...

                      I&#39;m not that hungover Ed&#33; I&#39;ll say it again: wheelie things for record boxes are GAY&#33;&#33;&#33; Serm&#39;s example is an exception however, carting them cases around an airport: no joke, but in a domestic DJ situation - you better hide&#33;

                      rucksacks with one strap that goes diagonal across the torso: INCREDIBLY GAY&#33;&#33;&#33;


                      Disclaimer: this isn&#39;t a homphobic use of the word gay, more along the lines of tradgically straight

                        Don&#39;t buy the bags with wheels on them. They&#39;re shite. The average life of a decent bag is anywhere up to ten years, but if you add wheels you&#39;ll be lucky to get two years&#39; use out of them. Buy a trolley separately. I got a mega indestructible one for 60 quid and it&#39;s been on many flights and still hasn&#39;t fallen apart. Those wheels are also not far enough apart so they tend to keel over when you&#39;re wheeling them.

                            Actually, while we&#39;re on the subject, I could do with replacing my record bag due to utter lack of praticality that is presents when actually using it for it&#39;s purpose (the way it opens at the top means that you have tos hift the contents about to get anything out, and if the bag is anywhere near full, just forget it).

                            Any recommendations ? I don&#39;t really want a Ninja Tunes branded bag by the way - good as they appear to be - anybody seen or used the &#39;Recordpak&#39; as sold by Grandslam ?

                              I wouldnt get a ninja tune style bag only because they are not sturdy enough. Well they are when they are full but when its say half full I always worry about snapping my records when I plop it down.

                              When I replace my one I think I&#39;m going for a thin metal flight case. One that holds 50 records tops.
